Bell-Northern Research (BNR) was one of the world's premier research and development organizations in telecommunications. Jointly owned by Bell Canada and Nortel Networks, and based in Ottawa, Canada, it pioneered the development of digital technology, and created the first practical digital PBX, ( SL1), and central office ( DMS).

The Berthold Seliger Forschungs- und Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH (BSFEGmbH) was a company founded by Berthold Seliger in 1961, which developed and built prototypes of sounding rockets and launched them near Cuxhaven. The BSFEGmbH cooporated strongly with the Hermann-Oberth-Gesellschaft, of which Berthold Seliger was a member. The first rocket developed by the BSFEGmbH was an improved version of the Kumulus, which was first launched on November 19 1962 and reached a height of 50 kilometres. On February 7 1963, the BSFEGmbH launched a two- stage rocket with a maximum height of 80 kilometres, and on May 2 1963, they launched a three-stage rocket with a maximum flight height of more than 100 kilometres. The latter rocket may have attained the highest flight altitude of all rockets built in post-war Germany. The signals from all these rockets were also received at the observatory in Bochum. After May 1963 the BSFEGmbH worked on the improvement of the steering system of their rockets and thought also on military usable rockets. ...more on Wikipedia about "Seliger Forschungs- und Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH"
